JAI 467 sketch challenge - blended floral friend card

I had a bit of time to play today & got to make a card for week's new Just Add Ink sketch challenge - I love when that happens.😃 This is the challenge sketch we're using, created by the lovely Lou Kitzelman.

And this is what I made, again using the beautiful Free as a Bird stamp set - this time with no birds.


First I stretched the challenge sketch, changing it from portrait to landscape, so I could use a rectangle instead of a square.

I stamped the sentiment, flowers, & leaf images from Free as a Bird in memento ink & coloured them with Stampin Blends markers in Highland Heather, Purple Posy, Mint Macaron & Soft Sea Foam.

These images need to be fussy cut, but thanks to my awesome Mother's Day gift of a ScanNCut, there was no fussy cutting here today. Yippee! I added some clear Wink of Stella to the flowers a little sparkle... and because I have to use it on pretty much on every card. Click on the pic for a closer look.

My other essential ingredients are the Rectangle Stitched dies and the Subtle 3d embossing folder, which I've embossed the paper pretty gingham paper with. And how could I forget some sequins - from the Woven Threads sequin pack. Pretty!

I added more paper & rectangles inside, but my pic went pear-shaped & no time to re-take, so you'll have to imagine it & look at the front again. ;)

Well, that's my take on the sketch challenge. Check out all our Design Team projects on the Just Add Ink blog, then try it yourself. I think you'll find it's a keeper.

Your card is so beautiful , Di, and I'm sure whoever receives it will love it. Yay for a Scan 'n' Cut - I recently treated myself to one as an early birthday present :)

Gorgeous card, Di. Love the colour combo. I’m procrastinating over the Scan n Cut at the moment. Would be great for images like this.
